A 15-year-old boy swimming with two other juveniles and one adult on Thursday afternoon in the Banks County Watershed Lake has reportedly drowned.
Banks County Sheriff Charles Chapman reported the body of Jobe Hart, Clarkesville, was discovered, by a dive team from Jackson County, around 7:45 p.m. approximately 15 feet from the bank of the lake located just off Purvis Road in Baldwin.
The 911 call came in to Banks County E-911 at 4:33 p.m.
Chapman said a witness reported Hart and the others swam out in the lake and Hart turned around to come back and went under about 15-feet from the bank and never came back up.
